Roller Conveyors

A roller conveyor consists of a series of parallel rotating bars that move goods along to their end destination. Roller conveyors are largely used in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.

The design of a roller conveyor consists of a series of tubes mounted at set intervals. The tubes rotate at the same rate and in the same direction to push objects along the top of the conveyor. Setting the conveyor at an angle can also help to propel objects along. The device may have equipment located alongside to perform various functions such as sealing packages, and employees can also be stationed along the conveyor to manipulate as they pass by. An ideal application for this kind of equipment is on packaging lines, where boxes of uniform size and shape can move easily down a roller conveyor. Likewise, when air circulation around a product is needed as it moves down the line, the roller conveyor can be very useful.
